Fujitsu Network Communications along with Korea’s mobile and home access networking expert, HFR Inc, has introduced a Smart xHaul plug-in transponder card that enables service providers to leverage their existing 4G network to quickly and efficiently support 5G services. Two North American Tier One operators are planning to deploy this new transport solution in their live 5G commercial networks having successfully completed 5G radio interoperability testing.As service providers race to deploy 5G, this new addition to the Smart xHaul transponder series allows them to add the needed capacity and capability without expending significant time and capital investment. Designed for integrated backhaul and fronthaul (Xhaul) transport for millimeter wave and sub-6 GHz radio architectures, the new ROE3J 3-port plug-in transponder card offers a fast upgrade path to 5G transport with support at 25 Gbps for radio over Ethernet (ROE), eCPRI, Ethernet and xRAN protocols.The Fujitsu Smart xHaul solution, which enables highly reliable optical transport for the most demanding Xhaul needs, comprises Fujitsu services, software and disaggregated hardware, including the HFR flexiHaul platform. Existing flexiHaul 8000 series platforms offer modular scaling options for the new ROE3J transponder card, providing multiple 5G channels over a single fiber core. This new transport solution is fully backward compatible with 4G Centralized Radio Access Network (C-RAN) platforms and serves as a significant early enabler for architectures that are critical to 5G success.According to Paul Havala, the Vice President of Global Planning and Photonics, Fujitsu Network Communications, the company worked closely with HFR to provide a cost-effective, fast track to 5G as an easy upgrade to the Fujitsu Smart xHaul solution offering robust transport that supports the low latency, high capacity and scalability requirements of tomorrow’s 5G networks. Simple transport upgrade options, like Fujitsu’s latest plug-in transponder card, will allow service providers to deliver new 5G services using their existing 4G transport infrastructure – something that will be key to profitability.

He qualified on the front row three times and raced last year for Ganassi Racing.Briscoe could not be reached for comment, and a Schmidt Peterson Motorsports official said the team will hold a press conference Thursday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway to discuss weekend plans, including the driver choice.Two sources confirmed Briscoe is in Indianapolis to drive the car. IndyCar president Derrick Walker said all replacement drivers start in the back, which means Briscoe will be there with James Davison, who had his car qualified Sunday by Tristan Vautier. Walker also is hoping to give Briscoe seat time on the track before Friday’s one-hour Carb Day practice (11 a.m.).How much are IndyCar drivers paid for the risks of racing?Briscoe was in offseason discussions with Sam Schmidt to join the team for this IndyCar Series season, but a deal never materialized.Hinchcliffe, who suffered an upper left thigh and pelvic injury in Monday’s Turn 3 crash, remains in stable condition at IU Health Methodist Hospital. He was scheduled to undergo another procedure today.Hinchcliffe’s recovery is expected to be lengthy due to the soft tissue damage. He suffered significant blood loss.Best of Pit Pass Live: Highlights from May at IMSHinchcliffe was at speed in Turn 3 when a right front suspension piece failed, sending the No. 5 car to the outside wall. The impact was fierce; the 125 G rating was one of the highest recorded at IMS.After the crash, IndyCar stopped practice to inspect the rockers of each car. Teams were told to use the latest version.Follow Curt Cavin on Twitter: @curtcavin
LSU wide receiver Malachi Dupre (15) celebrates his touchdown with teammate LSU offensive tackle Vadal Alexander (74) during the second half at Syracuse last month.BATON ROUGE – No. 5 LSU is a 19-point favorite to beat South Carolina in a 2:30 p.m. game Saturday on ESPN at Tiger Stadium.It is one of the largest point spreads by which the Tigers (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) have ever been favored by in a Southeastern Conference game as the Gamecocks (2-3, 0-3 SEC) have been struggling and now find themselves on the road due to a late scheduling change because of flooding in their home state.The spread rose five points with the site change. The Tigers (4-0, 2-0 SEC) have been favored by double-digit points for three straight weeks now. That will likely end a week from Saturday when No. 11 Florida (5-0, 3-0 SEC) visits Tiger Stadium. After this week, LSU will face three of the best rushing defenses in the SEC over its next four games in Florida, Alabama and Arkansas.Time to work on the passing game?Guilbeau: Fantasy island for Gamecocks, until kickoffSaturday’s game and an Oct. 24 home game against Western Kentucky before an open date and the trip to Alabama look like the last two opportunities to work on LSU’s troubled aerial attack against lesser opponents.“We’d like to throw a little bit more,” said LSU coach Les Miles, whose passing attack is dead last in the SEC with 95.5 yards a game – 59 yards below the second worst passing attack.The Tigers are 123rd in the nation in pass offense out of the 127 upper level schools. They are 13th of 14 in the SEC in passing efficiency at 112.4. Sophomore quarterback Brandon Harris was progressing decently, but last week he completed just 4 of 15 passes for 80 yards with an interception that was more of a fumble. And this was against 45-point underdog Eastern Michigan in a 44-22 win. On the season, Harris is 33-of-62 for 282 yards with two touchdowns and the interception for a 112.4 efficiency rating for 108th in the nation.“We’d like to have a little bit more balance,” Miles said. “There are specific reasons for that.”One is LSU tailback Leonard Fournette, who leads the nation in rushing (864 yards) and in rushing yards per game (216) while running away with the Heisman Trophy in weekly polls so far.“I feel that we’re handing the ball to the right guys and making sure that they get their number of touches,” Miles said. “It’s imperfect, but it’s representative of the games that we’ve had and the situations we’ve been in.”Miles had a problem with the touches by wide receivers Travin Dural and Malachi Dupre last week. Each dropped two passes that touched their hands. He blamed his receivers more for last week’s passing totals than he did Harris.“Brandon Harris is really doing what we ask him to do,” Miles said. “He’s really on target. We just need to catch it.”LSU’s Les Miles can relate to South Carolina situationThe receivers have not. Usually steady John Diarse has also experienced the drops.“We’re looking at shuffling the lineup,” Miles said. “We’re looking at all those things.” Then he pulled back and said, “I’m not ready to do that at this point in any wholesale fashion. We have to execute better, period.”Something may have to happen with the passing game or LSU will have to beat Florida, No. 8 Alabama, No. 14 Ole Miss and No. 9 Texas A&M one-dimensional style, which can be difficult.“We’re about to go into the meat of our schedule with SEC opponents,” Diarse said. “So we’ve got to find something. We’ve got to find a rhythm. We’ve got to find a flow of things.”As of now, things are flowing from Fournette. LSU has rushed the ball 186 times with 99 of those by Fournette. LSU has passed 62 times. So, LSU’s offense has been 75 percent run.“If they were recruiting me and they told me they were going to give the ball to Leonard or the other running backs 75 percent of the time, it might be hard to get a recruit at the receiver position or quarterback position,” Dupre said two days after dropping two passes. “But at the end of the day, we’re here. We’ve got to live with it. We’re doing the best that we can do blocking.”South Carolina may afford LSU an opportunity to pass and catch Saturday. The Gamecocks are 13th in the SEC and 103rd nationally in pass efficiency defense with a 139.7 rating, having allowed 108-of-151 passing for 1,094 yards and seven touchdowns with a .715 completion percentage.“When we get an opportunity,” Dupre said, “we’ve got to make the best of it.”Coverage of LSU and Glenn Guilbeau commentary supported by Hebert’s Town and Country Auto Dealer in Shreveport located at 1155 E.

AUBURN – Flags flew early and often at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on Saturday, with both Auburn and Ole Miss called for a seemingly endless array of penalties.When it was all over, Auburn was called for 13 penalties for 145 yards in its 35-31 win over Ole Miss, the most penalties against the Tigers since committing 15 against Florida in 2002 and the most penalty yards in the SEC this season.Troubling to coaches was that many of the calls were not discretionary in nature, with multiple personal fouls for late hits out of bounds a particularly poor display.Defensive backs Jonathan Jones and Derrick Moncrief were each called for personal fouls, with Jones’ infraction helping contribute to an Ole Miss scoring drive in the first quarter.“They’ve got to have judgment,” Auburn defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson said. “If they had gone over and cheap-shotted a guy, that’s discipline. Both of them, they barely touched the guy, but the guy was clearly on the white. They’ve just got to see that, and they’ve got to have better judgment. … They’ve got to pull up. It’s the only thing you can do.”The Tigers were called for four penalties on offense, including two holding calls.“You’ve got to be in the right body position and when you start to feel a guy leave you can’t grab him, you have to let go and re-fit,” offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee said. “Obviously the time it happened one of the penalties and turnovers was inside the 20-yard line. It’s rare that you’re going to have a game without any penalties like we did two games ago, but obviously we can’t have those drive-killers, those 10-yard penalties and 15-yard penalties. It’s a discipline issue.”One penalty not called against Auburn was for too many men on the field during the third quarter. Auburn had 12 players on offense for a play that resulted in an 11-yard gain by Cameron Artis-Payne.“We obviously didn’t have the right guys on the field,” Lashlee said. “We signaled the formation and one guy stayed on the field and a new guy on. Obviously that’s not good.”

NEW ORLEANS – Alabama kicker Adam Griffith opened the season by connecting on all seven of his field goal attempts through the first three games.Then came the miss in the Florida game, but that was written off as a blip. But when Griffith missed two of his three kicks in the Tide’s loss at Ole Miss, some began to wonder if Alabama’s kicking woes would be more of a trend. He’s 12-of-19 on the year having missed seven of his last 12 kicks. Alabama coach Nick Saban mentioned that Griffith had some sort of injury, but wouldn’t give any details about what was ailing the redshirt sophomore kicker.During Alabama’s open media day at the Superdome, Griffith said he’s been dealing with a stress fracture in his back.While the time off since the SEC Championship Game has helped Griffith, he said he won’t be “100 percent for the game” when the Tide faces Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday. Griffith did say he will handle the kickoff and field goal responsibilities during the game.“I’m just going to do my best to fight through the pain,” he said.“(The coaches) ask me how I feel throughout the game. If I tell them it bothers me and we’re up by three touchdowns, they tell me to go ahead and chill.”It’s a recurring injury that has bothered him since his prep days.“It started my junior and senior year (of high school),” Griffith said Tuesday. “I had to miss a couple of games in high school because of it. The last two years, my freshman and sophomore years of college, I didn’t have it because I didn’t kick as much. But in my first year starting, I had to kick a little more so it just came back.”The toughest part of dealing with the injury for Griffith has been the lack of practice time. He has to rest so he rarely gets to properly prepare for the game like everyone else.“I only get like four reps during the week to get ready for the game,” he said. “That was frustrating because I knew I wasn’t comfortable. I wasn’t in rhythm. That’s when I started missing a few kicks. That’s when everything changed. That was pretty tough.”Griffith took some heat from fans on social media for his performances.“The fans didn’t know what was wrong,” Griffith said. “They just thought I was missing kicks. But I don’t care what they think. As long as everybody here knows what’s wrong, then I’m fine.”The pain became so bad that Griffith had to be pulled in a few game situations. During those spots, freshman punter JK Scott took over kickoff duties while walk-on Gunnar Raborn handled field goals and extra points.“We just had to rest him to let the injury settle down, which it has at this point,” said Bobby Williams, Alabama’s tight ends and special teams coach. “At one point, he was struggling to even walk. He’s feeling pretty good now.”The problem with Griffith’s injury is that it can flare up at any time while kicking. Griffith said if he keeps kicking, “it’s going to keep coming back.” At this point, it’s a matter of whether or not he can deal with the pain.This offseason, he plans to not kick at all and focus more on core and strength work to make his back stronger. Other than that, Griffith said staying off his feet will be key.“I don’t think you can have surgery on it,” he said. “I think the only way you can treat it is by rest. Obviously I don’t get that rest right now.”Contact Anniston Star Sports Writer Marq Burnett at firstname.lastname@example.org. On Twitter: @Marq_Burnett.
